“When people, land, and community are as one, all three members prosper; when they relate not as members but as competing interests, all three are exploited.”
The Land Institute from Edible Estates: Attack on the Front Lawn, 2nd Revised Edition

One of the easiest ways to build community is to support local businesses and farms. Find a local farmers market, a small food co-op, shop at local businesses, eat at local restaurants and you’ll be amazed at how this brings prosperity to your local community. When the local community prospers all the members prosper and that includes you. Take some time today and think about how you can increase support for the small, local businesses and farms in your area and help bolster your community. It’s vital for us to keep our communities strong because it helps us be more resilient and the responsibility is ours to strengthen them!
